Organic Buckwheat Flour is made from 100% whole grain buckwheat groats. Despite the name, buckwheat isn’t related to wheat and is naturally gluten free (note: this is not processed in gluten free facility)!
Use buckwheat flour for making delicious buckwheat pancakes, soba noodles, blini, and as a replacement for wheat flour in baked goods.
Buckwheat flour is a good source of dietary fiber and contains essential amino acids. The buckwheat plant is actually a pseudocereal, not a grain. The pyramid-shaped raw buckwheat kernels are harvested and ground into a surprisingly rich flour. Unlike light buckwheat flour, this flour contains little black specks that come from the ground seed hull.
Buckwheat flour is a must-have for making traditional Russian blini or buckwheat crepes. It has a unique, assertive flavor that is especially great in both quick and yeast breads.
In wheat bread, use half buckwheat flour to add a rich, nutlike flavor and darker color.
